A Way Forward III

A Way Forward is a four-part series dedicated to sharing these challenges with the CCAD community, along with ways to help address them and contribute to their resolution.

We believe diversity in ideas leads to better medical research, and to achieve this, it is important to identify and address individual, community and institutional challenges scientists face that hold us back as a community. The third piece is written by Jacqueline Helpern. To read her article click on the button below.

New Vision Research Focus – Joseph Castellano

Looking back at the path that led me to start my own research group, I see the Charleston Conference on Alzheimer’s disease as certainly one of the significant early steps. The goal of my proposal, for which I was generously recognized with a New Vision Award, was to characterize peripheral regulation of synaptic plasticity in the context of aging and Alzheimer’s-associated genetic backgrounds, including APOE4.

Impact Through Grant Funding

Traditionally, early-career scientists and those with more novel approaches to their research face considerable difficulty securing funding for their work. This is partly due to the higher-risk nature of their work, while both established scientists and those pursuing proven methods of study are considered less risky to fund. New Vision Research alters the current landscape of funding by intentionally connecting and supporting early-career researchers with innovative ideas through CCAD.
